Fess Parker Quotes:

[as the raiders are climbing into the boxcar, Andrews notices that a Confederate soldier is watching them]
James J. Andrews: Come on, boys. When it's orders from Beauregard, we can't keep the General waiting.
[Confederate soldier walks away]


Davy Crockett: I'm half-horse, half-alligator and a little attached with snapping turtle. I've got the fastest horse, the prettiest sister, the surest rifle and the ugliest dog in Texas. My father can lick any man in Kentucky... and I can lick my father. I can hug a bear too close for comfort and eat any man alive opposed to Andy Jackson.


Jim Coates: Now and then, for no good reason, life will haul off and knock a man flat.
